Twilight? Don’t turn off the lights, quite yet? James Fallows’ piece in yesterday’s NY Times regarding the impact of the Internet (including blogs) on “information middlemen” is merely a rehash of of a decade-old discussion of media disintermediation. (I know I’ve been pointing people to this Esther Dyson essay on the topc for at least nine years.) However, Fallow’s essay is a good overview of those things happening around us that should cause us all to stop and consider the economics of information. I have blogged on this issue before and, no doubt, will later when I can grab the time.
